If you want to show a bit of love for a spacecraft currently in lonely orbit around a planet 900 million miles away, you can do so by waving at Saturn on Friday or Saturday, 19 or 20 July, depending on your time zone. Cassini will be taking a photograph that includes the Earth.

If you're in Britain you will be wanting to wave at around 10:30 PM on Friday. If you're on the west coast of the USA, you will be wanting wave at around 2:30 PM on Friday. If you're in (most parts of) Australia, you'll want to wave at 7:30 AM on Saturday.
